By accident - The LDP CD-Writer-HOWTO mentions the use of a --cdr
option, which apparently formats the output for piping to cdrecord;  I
couldn't find that documented, so I thought "Hey, I wonder if there's
a "--wav" switch too (since that would be an obviously useful
feature).  Tried it, it worked.

Don't have the source handy right now (I guess I musta had it
preinstalled), but it's probably worthwhile to check there for any
other "hidden" features...
